Want to be a Mumsnet Local Editor? Step this way ...

Mumsnet Local is growing all the time and we're on the look out for Mumsnetters who'd like to get involved in the project as Local Editors. Are you enthusiastic about where you live, keen on sharing the joy with other parents in your area - and looking for an excuse to spend even more time on Mumsnet? Then Mumsnet needs YOU.

What would you need to do? Well, the short answer is that we want each Local site to be the place where parents can get all the essential information and advice that they need about their neighbourhood from the experts - that is, the other parents who live there. We ask our Local Editors to be responsible for growing and nurturing their community by adding and editing listings, building a group of Local Ambassadors who organise regular meet-ups, and getting the word out in their area - and in return, have the right to sell advertising on the site to local businesses and keep 100% of the revenue.

That's the short answer. For the long one, please email with 'interested in becoming a Local Editor' in the subject field, and we'll get back to you as soon as ever we can.

Do any of you exisiting LE's share your role /area with anyone?

Would it would mean sharing the profits I guess is what I'm asking!!

Hi all. I'm thinking of becoming a LE and using what I make as my main income. It sounds like it's all about what you put in but I would need to clear about £500 a month after tax. Is this feasible? I'm very excited about it!

Thanks for getting back to us Helen. I suppose patience is the way forward. Never been renowned for it.

Right. Word from our Local Supremo is that she's got a huge pile of names now (hurrah!) and it's going to take her a little while to go through them all.

Hope you can bear with us for a bit. We're sure she'll be in touch with everyone soon.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 19-Jun-13 12:35:45

Hello. Sorry about this. We'll find out what's going on.

Beechview Wed 19-Jun-13 10:16:57

No I haven't either.

lougle Tue 18-Jun-13 23:00:22

No, not so far, KneeDeepInDaisies sad

Has anyone heard anything bar the first email confirming you we're interested?

glorious Sun 09-Jun-13 20:13:02

Ok thanks, will do.

OliviaMMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 08-Jun-13 19:38:41

Glorious = yes that would be useful indeed.
Do and we can put you in touch with your local editor (if we have one yet)

glorious Sat 08-Jun-13 09:46:31

I'd be really happy to add listings etc and be an ambassador but not really fussed about selling advertising. Would that be useful or do you need people to do the whole lot? FWIW there's currently very little on my local site.

Apols for not replying sooner blush Emma is away on her hols but we have all of the emails and will be replying over the next couple of weeks or so - there's always room for more grin

Don't be shy now wink

lougle Sun 02-Jun-13 22:22:50

Same here.

Beechview Sun 02-Jun-13 22:04:01

Still not heard anything.....

lougle Sat 25-May-13 12:30:48

Thank you smile

HI there
Unlikely to be any news on this today, I'm afraid as main office is v 9 to 5
but we'll certainly chase.

Beechview Sat 25-May-13 10:39:48

I've not heard back after an initial 'Thanks for your interest' email. Any news?

I've sent an email too

lougle Thu 23-May-13 09:52:38

Emma, could you confirm you received my email? Thanks smile

ALovelyBunchOfCoconuts Wed 22-May-13 18:38:13

Email has been sent smile

LoopyLooplaHoop Wed 22-May-13 17:37:48

I have a keen DH with time on his hands and a lot of skill if you do, Emma. A key expat area that might be a good starting point?

Tee2072 Wed 22-May-13 17:16:18

Yes, ALovely. Send an email.

All the more reason it needs an LE, Herring!

TheHerringScreams Wed 22-May-13 16:53:48
